Socious is a community app for social change. Our mission is to "connect people to accelerate social change". Many people are interested in contributing to social impact projects, but few of them can do so. We leverage this untapped potential by helping them contribute to society in an easy, fun way through a purpose-driven community app, AI recommendations, and blockchain-based community currency.
The Socious app helps anyone who has a passion for social change contribute their time to social impact projects in an easy, fun, and fulfilling way. Socious helps them connect with like-minded people and effortlessly join social impact projects. You can learn new skills and build your portfolio while contributing to a social cause. We offer blockchain-based tokens when you contribute your time to social impact projects. These tokens can be exchanged for socially conscious products within the community.
In existing social media, personal data is being collected and sold without consent. On Socious, you - not those companies - are the owner of your data and you can sell it to whomever you please through our blockchain-based platform.
We create a circular economy where all activities -whether you join social impact projects or buy socially conscious products - contribute to solving social problems. These activities reinforce each other, grow our community, and accelerate social change.
Version 1.0 Social media for social change
Version 1.0 has a social networking function that allows you to connect with people and organizations that are interested in the same social issues. One person cannot solve major social issues alone. Socious accelerates social change by bringing like-minded people together, who will collaborate to solve social problems. Each user (individual or organization) can add tags of social issues they are interested in on their profile, and connect with people and organizations who are interested in the same social issues through newsfeed posts and search functions. When users follow each other, they can send and receive direct messages. They can join existing social impact projects or co-found new projects.
We are currently developing the following features.
- AI Recommendations & Learn new skills while contributing to a social cause
We make it as easy as possible for anyone to join social impact projects through our AI recommendations and 1-Click Application feature. Our proprietary algorithms match the right talent with the right role, reduce the risk of mismatches, and save time and effort to search for projects. You can find paid opportunities where you can learn new skills while contributing to a social cause.
- Blockchain-based community currency and marketplace for socially conscious products
By offering Socious Coins, our blockchain-based community currency, Socious incentivizes people to contribute to a social cause. You can earn Socious Coins by contributing their time to social impact projects. Your Socious Coins can be exchanged for socially conscious products sold by Socious organizations (NPOs, social businesses, etc.) at Socious Market - you can solve social issues not only by contributing your time but also by buying and selling products. Socious organizations can hire people who can contribute their time and skills to their projects using the Socious Coins they obtain by selling socially conscious products. In this way, the circulation of Socious Coins creates a social impact ecosystem.
- Blockchain-based platform where you can take full control of and monetize your data
In existing social media, personal data is being collected and sold without consent. On Socious, you - not those companies - are the owner of your data and you can sell it to whomever you please through our blockchain-based platform in a secure manner. Your data is securely stored on a blockchain and, if you wish, you can choose to sell it to advertisers/researchers via smart contracts. You don’t need to directly hand over your data to companies because you can send your data to a trusted execution environment (TEE) where companies can run their algorithms to achieve their goals.
